Cristina Morrison - I Love

Summer In New York Lyrics

Summer In New York

Corners, streets, and alleys meet
Zebra stripes and traffic lights
I miss metro stops
Swinging me downtown
Chinese crumbles news
To make his bed at night

Lust and sex and humid heat
Madness calls and muses float
Tell me where you are
Please come back to me
I loose myself at night
To make my lonely days seem right

Summer in New York
Summer sexy breeze…yeaaahhh
Dancing on the river…yeeeeaaahhh

City lights and devilish drinks
Wild woman come to me
Kiss me on my lips
Burn me with your fire
Meet me in my dreams
Make my lonely days seem right

Summer in New York
Summer sexy breeze..yeaaah
Dancing on the river…yeeeaaah

Dancing barefoot in the park
To the beat of who knows who
You pierce through my pores
Lead me to the end
Underneath the moon
Make my lonely nights seems right

Fifteen Day Affair Lyrics

Fifteen Day Affair

rifting wood in the sunrise light, you knew me well, a life
in a dark night drowned at sea
Misty, playful, subtle eyes, who would have known this
would start an endless fifteen day affair

Broken laugh in a sundown melt, I knew you well, tears of
a wild cry, run to sea
Drifty, chilling, southern wind, who would have known this
would start an endless fifteen day affair

I say no and you say yes, I say why and you say when
I say soft and you say kiss, I say flirt and you say touch
And I’ll never be the same again
And I’ll never be the same again
In this side of town a baby smiles

Give me your sweet lips of life
Give me your love when I call
Dragonflies, dunes of rose, barefoot dreams, sandy streets
In fifteen day affair

I Love Lyrics

I Love

I love to dance
I love to sing
I love to roam
I love a storm
I love to catch and ride a wave
On a glassy morning day
I love to live
I love to cry
I love a thrill
I love a chill
I love a silent starry night
I love making love to you

I love the bubbling of champagne
I love to hang out with my friends
I love the wrinkling on your face
I love the wisdom in an old man’s eyes
I love to jam and drink all night
Until the dancing breaking light
I love making love to you

I love their fears
I love their tears
I love a kiss
I love New York
I love the sound of ballet shoes
And I hate, and I hate, and I hate saying bye to you

Stand Still Lyrics

Stand Still

Every time you walk away
My heart says stay another day with me
But you’ll come back in the autumn light
That holds you oh ever so tight
When the yearning thrives
Oh, come home make love to me
Oh, one more time deliciously

Are you playing with my heart
How many different words can comfort me
Why cast your spell in every trail that leads
You to another girl, look into my eyes
Dare to tell me that we’re not
Meant to be in state of love

Stand still
Wait until the sound of the warm thrill
That gently wakes you up
And stand still
Cause it’s our loving sin
And it’s meant to be
Naturally, eternally
To stand still
And wait until the sign from the moon & stars

What a Difference a Day Makes Lyrics

What a Difference a Day Makes

What a difference a day made twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers where there used to be rain
My yesterday was blue, dear , today I’m part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear , since you said you were mine
What a difference a day makes there’s a rainbow before me
Skies above can’t be stormy since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss
It’s heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made and the difference is you
What a difference a day makes , there’s a rainbow before me
Skies above can’t be stormy since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss
It’s heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made and the difference is you

Red Mafia and Jass Lyrics

Red Mafia and Jass

New Orleans lost in the past
I loose myself in your guts
Cajun moon in the Quarter
The Mississippi blues

Red mafia and jass
And I smell the sex
Down to Storyville

New Orleans lost in the past
I loose myself in your guts
Drunk by women in cribs
Deep black soul in love

Red mafia and jass
And I smell the sex
Down to Storyville

I miss you so
Wait for me
I miss you so
Don’t die just yet
I miss you so, New Orleans
I’ll always come back
I’ll come back to your lust

New Orleans lost in the past
I loose myself in your guts
Reminds me of streetcar on Charles
And Blanche’ s lonesome desire

Creoles, cotton & swamps
And I smell the sex
Down in New Orleans

East of the Sun Lyrics

East of the Sun

East of the sun and west of the moon
We’ll build a dream house of love dear
Close to the sun in the day
Near to the moon at night
We’ll live in a lovely way dear
Sharing our love in the pale moonlight

Just you and I, forever and a day
Love will not die; we’ll keep it that way
Up among the stars we’ll find a harmony of life to a lovely tune
East of the sun and west of the moon dear
East of the sun and west of the moon

Perfect Little Storms Lyrics

Perfect Little Storms

Don’t you start to cry, my little baby
My sweet blue eyes, my little baby
Your funny laugh and games
Make me shine every single day and night in my life

Don’t you start to pout my little man
My perfect little storm, my little man
Your foolish laughs and games
Make me shine every single day and night in my life

You always melt my heart with your baby laughs,
with your baby smile, with your baby walk
With your curly hair you dance with me
And I sing to you and you smile through your eyes
And you love me too like I do you, all our lives.

Don’t you start to pout my little man
My perfect little storm, my little man
Your funny laughs and cries
Make me shine every single day and night of my life

You always melt my heart with your childish games, and your childish laughs
and your childish talk
With your wild hair you rock with me and sing Summertime
And sweet tears in your eyes say you love me too
Like I do you, all our lives

Fine and Mellow Lyrics

Fine and Mellow

My man don’t love me
He treats me oh so mean
My man he don’t love me
He treats me awful mean
He’s the lowest man
That I’ve ever seen

He wears high trimmed pants
Stripes are really yellow
He wears high trimmed pants
Stripes are really yellow
But when he starts in to love me
He is so fine and mellow

Love will make you drink and gamble
Make you stay out all night long
Love will make you drink and gamble
Make you stay out all night long
Love will make you do things
That you know is wrong

Treat me right baby
And I’ll stay home everyday
Just treat me right baby
And I’ll stay home night and day
But you’re so mean to me baby
I know you’re gonna drive me away

Love is just like a faucet
It turns off and on
Love is like a faucet
It turns off and on
Sometimes when you think it’s on baby
It has turned off and gone

DAN BILAWSKY - ALLABOUTJAZZ.COM - Vocalist Cristina Morrison is as worldly and well-traveled as they come. She was born in Miami and spent time living in Rome, Quito, the Galapagos Islands and Los Angeles before landing in the Big Apple, from whence she recorded this fine debut. Morrison possesses a voice that's alternately soothing, sassy, straightforward or sly, and she brings it to bear on a diverse array of original and oft-covered offerings.
Edward Blanco - Ejazznews - Gifted with a beautiful voice, this new lady of jazz makes quite a splash on I Love, a debut recording capturing a graceful performance stylishly announcing her entrance into the world of jazz music.
Brent Black - Critical Jazz - A first call selection of some of the Big Apple's finest push Morrison to discover her own keen sense of melodic feel and develop the true potential of her own engaging lyrics which while deceptively subtle are at times rather cinematic in scope. I Love is a pristine recording designed to touch the listener both the visceral and cerebral levels and this may be where the true success and individuality of the artist are born. Morrison is the real deal bringing together a nice package with musical chops to spare. An incredibly entertaining and adventurous tour de force that gives up a little something new with each subsequent spin of the disc. A real winner that leaves the listener longing for more!
4 STARS - Oscar Montagut - latinjazznet.com - Exceptional musicians are part of this interesting and loving project, creating a profound mix of rhythms where the interpretation of each band member contributes to the making of this high quality musical album.
John Book - She gets into singing in a bebop fashion or something that migt make Natalie Cole proud. I love is one vocal jazz album that is worth a listen or two, and worth suggestion to any and all.
WidePR.com - "chameleonic and versatile ” and she brings these same qualities to her music on an album that melds jazz, blues, folk and pop sensibilities of the U.S. with samba, bossa nova and other South American influences, in a unique mélange that is all her own.
impactony.com - Impacto de New York al Mundo - Estadounidense Morrison desata en Ecuador su vena latina con disco “I love.”
The World Music Report - This beautiful musical project is the perfect image of what Ms. Morrison is, a poetic and chameleonic figure in the art field. Her work reflects a myriad of elements from different cultures and places which seem fitting as she has been living in different countries around the world.
Midwest Record by CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher - Morrison is down with the concept of old school dames but she has a pomo sensibility all the way. Probably hiding a restless artist behind a cool façade, Morrison ditches her last persona but doesn’t leave it too far behind as crime jazz mixes with after hours mixes with just about everything else that could be smoky. A cinematic musical experience, this almost a nu kind of cabaret in the making.
CD Review: Cadence July 2012 by Jerome Wilson - Morrison sings with a more worldly, sophisti- cated sound on (6). Her voice is more jazz-oriented and the music behind her sounds really polished. The glossiness really shows on the slow cha-cha beat of “What A Difference” and the bossa nova groove of “East Of The Sun” but that slickness does not undermine the sultriness of her singing. Morrison sings seductively all over this disc, whether she is tackling the brassy funk of “Red Mafia”, the lushness of “Fifteen Day Affair” or the jazzy pop of “I Love.” There are good solos throughout from horn players Christian Hidrobo and Walter Symanski but Morrison is the dominant voice really giving this work life and emotion.
CD Review: by Doug Boynton - This is a strong debut from singer-songwriter-actress Cristina Morrison, who has polished a half-dozen original tracks and three classics to a luster, with the help of some excellent New York session players.I’ll look to hear more from Ms. Morrison. Hope it’s soon.This disc is highly recommended.
